Mmm, I can still see all my pics. Don't know why this is happening... I do host some on Photobucket, but I usually reach the bandwidth limit in the middle of the month. Same pics can be seen on my blog though.

whatever123 is quite right, it all depends on materials and specs. Best to shoot him an e-mail to enquire - Scott doesn't bite :P

Question about oiling belts and stuff:

I have the oil and the heavy duty LP from obenauf's. Which one should i use? How exactly should i use them? Like you use it on your shoes (apply a liberal amount and then heat it up with a hairdryer)? Should i apply it on both sides (raw and smooth side) or on the smooth side only?
What else do you guys use to treat your belts?

Thanks

^ I have written a few things about leather care on my blog, please feel free to sample my opinions :P

I like to use animal fats/oils, and beeswax, or my own concoctions.

Hey Mike

I like your blog, lots of good leather articles, bookmarked

Could you post some specific links to articles about leather care? Would be awesome, thanks.

Schpacko a lot of your pictures above are already gone. You should switch to perhaps Imgur before you continue to post pictures, with IS most of yours will be gone in short time spand. That goes for a lot of other users as well, it is unfortunately when good threads like this one, where i for one would like to see all the pictures and IS ruins it.

Yeah, i noticed that, thanks for the hint.

I posted the pics via imageshack (post #318) and then reposted them via imgur (#319).

Cheers mate.
There's some in the "Leather" section, but I want to write a new one soon.
Couple of other leather dudes complained my posts are too one-sided regarding oiling and care, so I would like to do a more comprehensive one.

So, today i decide to give my belt a little treatment. I just applied a pretty generous amount of Obenaufs Leather Oil and heated it up with a hairdryer until all the oil was absorbed. After that, i put it in the sun for about 2 hours.
I knew it would darken the belt, but i didnt expect that much darkening.

But i think it looks awesome, especially with raw denim

^Nice, schpacko! I am waiting for a sunny day so I can do the same to my natural belt that I'm wearing.

No, I haven't. I live in the middle of nowhere and don't get to handle anything.

I didn't know you were in SLC! I keep meaning to meet up with Cash (from sufu), who is also in the RoyxCone contest. I think we need to have a SLC mini meet soon.
